In addition to certain embroidery habits that shall remain nameless, I also make and wear costumes. My current favorite is Steampunk, but I have been seen in Belle Epoch, Victorian(ish), Renaissance/RenFair, and Original Character. I am a not-paid-up-member of DFWCG (Dallas-Ft. Worth Costumers Guild). A week or so ago, a group of us met up at the Lewesville Studio Movie Grill to see Sherlock Holmes. Most of us did Steampunk. Here is what I wore:
Please to be noting, I didn't actually make any of those clothing bits. All out of my closet. It's less stressful that way. But I promise, I do sew my own stuff, too. :)
There's a dfwcg flickr stream here if you'd like to see more talented people than I playing dress-up.
